Among the designers are British duo Jonathon and Marnie Green, who created a suite themed on the West End, while Robert Harding created the Bone Room which highlights the cycle of life.

The hotel has welcomed more than one million guests since it opened 30 years ago, and uses 1,000 blocks of ice to build.

Fancy staying for yourself? A three-night stay with Discover The World costs £1,061 per person including flights between London Heathrow and Kiruna.

From an ice-carved observation deck to a frozen bar, here are the exciting new designs at the hotel you can stay in this year.
